Long Pine Run Reservoir in Pennsylvania

Trip Overview

Long Pine Run is a quiet destination and is, in my opinion, a little gem. The reservoir is located in the Micheaux State Forest and because there are no picnicking or camping facilities in the immediate vicinity, the people are much fewer than in a state park. The lake has approximately three miles of shoreline, most of which is mixed hardwood and pine forest. While small motorized boats are allowed, the canoes, kayaks and occasional small sailboat are the norm. If it is peace and quiet you seek, Long Pine Run is a good bet.


Small boat launch, parking, no toilets or water source. Nearest campground is at nearby Caledonia State Park.


No fees. PA state boating permits and regulations apply.


Rt. 30 east from Chambersburg, PA. Go left at Rt. 233 toward Caledonia State Park. Follow 233 for approximately 1.5 miles and go left onto a dirt road marked with a sign for Long Pine Run Reservoir. Take the first road to the right, which will be about 3/4 of a mile up.
